found it on craigslist 
http://pensacola.craigslist.org/rvs/2017976254.html

emailed back and forth and gathered alot of info. but, money I had planned on, didn't happen.
nothing in it for me, but motor/trans combo is probably worth it.

You must be why she stopped Emailing me. Did they send you any more pictures? What kind of stuff did they tell you?

I didn't ask for any pictures. Having owned and converted one 4905 and worked on some others, I really didn't care about the inside. I was looking for a shell, so anything inside would just be gravy to me.

husband said not rusty in the usual places
not road driven since put in storage, but started every few months
front air bags leak a little. I figure maybe leveling valves leak since air bags don't really leak a little
still 24 volt
still titled as bus
no hitch
new propeller shaft on it.
auto trans
one bad tire, but has a spare
they couldn't remember if the fuel filters were screw on or old style. they were going to check for me.
has repair manual for P8M4108A and 4905
and probably some other stuff I had already deleted.
 
All in all, It sounded like the bus for me. another blank canvas Smiley
sometimes, money things just don't work out.
I told her that I wasn't scared of problems, I'd just like to know ahead of time, so I could prepare and bring the proper tools and equipment to fire her up and drive it back to Arkansas.
hope this helps.
Almost forgot, they drove it 500 miles, then put it in storage. I guess that would be a plus. means it runs anyway, and trans must have shifted.

Doc,
 I see in your profile you are in the Ozarks?? I am just SW of Harrison. Are you a bus mechanic by chance? I am not needing anything at the moment, but you never know.
